It's been a while since Logitech has come out with a racing wheel, but today they're going full force with the announcement of the Logitech G923 Racing Wheel and Pedals. The new wheel is set to deliver another level of immersion with improved force feedback as well as other improvements.
The G923 will be made for both the Xbox and PlayStation 4 as well as their next generation siblings. Besides working on the current and next consoles, the PC will also have support for the two wheels, just like the G920 and G29. We reviewed both the PlayStation and Xbox variants when they were released many years ago.
TRUEFORCE is the name of Logitech's next generation in force feedback system and it's suppose to deliver a more accurate feel to whats happening on the screen. It processes up to 4000 times a second and has a wider range of force feedback than its predecessors.
The wheel itself has programmable dual clutch launch controls and onboard controls that are specific to the console version you pick up. Logitech is also touting a progressive break that should be more responsive to you.
Coming in at $399.99, both console variants will be available this month in both Europe and America.
Logitech G923 Racing Wheel and Pedals Features New Force Feedback System, Delivering
Next-Generation Realism and Performance for Sim Racers
LAUSANNE, Switzerland & NEWARK, Calif. — August 5th, 2020 — Logitech G, a brand of Logitech, (SIX: LOGN) (NASDAQ: LOGI) and leading innovator of gaming technologies and gear, today unveiled the Logitech G923 Racing Wheel and Pedals, a high performance racing wheel that revolutionizes the sim racing experience. Engineered for maximum realism, G923 features TRUEFORCE™ a new high-definition force feedback system that dials into a game’s physics and audio engine to deliver an ultra-realistic experience.
“A great force-feedback racing wheel can be the difference between crossing the finish line first and spinning off the track and not finishing at all,” said McLaren F1 driver Lando Norris. “The new Logitech G923 wheel with TRUEFORCE gives drivers an authentic experience behind the wheel and simulates the details we feel as racing drivers. I can feel if the rear of the car loses grip or if I’m about to spin, which gives me the best chance to quickly correct it, and stay ahead of the competition.”
TRUEFORCE is a proprietary high definition force feedback technology that revolutionizes what’s possible in supported racing games. Using actual game physics and audio in real time, it allows players to feel things like the roar of an engine, tire traction, the terrain of the track, and feedback of the steering wheel more than ever before. TRUEFORCE connects directly to in-game engines, processing at up to 4000 times per second to produce next-gen realism and detail in supported games.
“For the last few years, we’ve been working with sim drivers, and professional race car drivers to develop a full-featured, realistic driving experience like no other,” said Ujesh Desai, general manager at Logitech G. “With TRUEFORCE you really get to feel the road, along with all the subtle features of the race car. It truly elevates the experience, and everyone we’ve had try it always walks away with a smile!”
Designed for today’s sim racers, the G923 wheel and pedals have been modernized with a brushed metal steering wheel, polished pedals and a leather wheel cover for maximum comfort. In addition, the G923 was designed with a number of new features, including:
● Programmable Dual Clutch Launch Controls - allows racers to get off the line cleaner and faster with a programmable dual-clutch that facilitates maximum traction and minimum smoke.
● Built-In Rev Indicator - built-in colored LED lights indicate your RPM range, alerting the racer when they’re hitting redline.
● On-Wheel Game Controls - game controls for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5* consoles integrated into the steering wheel for total control at your fingertips.
● Progressive Brake Pedals - featuring a new progressive spring for a more responsive feel, the new brake pedal responsiveness adds more realism and control.
● 24-Point Selection Dial - built in selection dial allows the racer to adjust traction, torque, automatic stability management, brake force and more.
